It's useful to have a male perspective at times. Recently, a male friend advised me that I should get a couch if I don't want to remain single all my life. Apparently, the rather bare state of my living room (or as my son refers to it "the play area") doesn't encourage suitors to make a romantic move. On the question of whether I want to be single for the rest of my life, I find I'm actually pretty okay with that thought at the moment. Though I certainly wouldn't rule out a relationship, either. Regardless of all that, I do want a couch.
Carmel needs a van. Hers died. This is pretty crucial, not only because Carmel and Patricia are inconvenienced by not having a vehicle, but because the van has been important in ferrying all our band equipment all over the place. So Elizabeth needs it too.
Ok universe, putting it out there.
